Sikorsky has started final assembly work on the first US Air Force HH-60W Combat Rescue Helicopter at its Stratford, Connecticut facility.

The first flight is scheduled for the end of 2018.

The final assembly process includes the installation of the new Tactical Mission Kit and a new 660-gallon fuel system which nearly doubles the capacity of the internal tank of the UH-60M Black Hawk.

There will be four Engineering Manufacturing Development aircraft and five System Demonstration Test Articles.
